India! I dare you to be rich

Will the fool Vandana Shiva now apologise for grievous harm she has caused India?

This article is self-explanatory.

"anti-GM activism is based on widely believed myths and popular misconceptions and conspiracy theories, promoted by political activists like Vandana Shiva, who find anti-GM a convenient banner to organise their reactionary campaigns against modern technology and capitalism in general"

"GM crops have been exhaustively tested now for two decades, and there has not been a single substantiated case of harm to any human or animal during that time from crops which are now in the market. That is why I say the debate is over"

    Sanjeev Sabhlok No. I tried finding out more and came across this: “Genetically engineered foods have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions in people; to sickness, sterility and fatalities in livestock; and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals.” (http://www.foodrevolution.org/). This is seriously false and misleading.

    Sanjeev,

    A. the harm of GM is still not clear.

    B. but the ownership of companies who distribute are all giant MNCs, infact you will have to pay if your crops have been pollinated by GM crops across the field.

    C. I will share more info on this sooner.

    Let regulators make science-based decisions on its safety. To the best of my knowledge, GM doesn’t harm, and is just like any other food.

    Re: its reproduction and ownership rights, no MNC can sell such a thing if it doesn’t significantly increase productivity to offset the increase in costs of seeds. In other words, while these additional costs are involved, the benefits must exceed, else these MNCs will go bankrupt.

    Further there is no reason for Indians to not create their own varieties of GM crops and start their own MNCs.

    I am unable to see any problem with GM. If farmers choose to plant it, so be it. If they don’t like it, so be it. Why the bother?
